Wrong Place

They need to be in PortableApps\CommonFiles\Flash\files

Is firefox in PortableApps\FirefoxPortable and ALL the Flash files (not just those two) are placed within PortableApps\CommonFiles\Flash\files?

Don't Know

I don't know offhand. Flash changes a bit with each release. I haven't tested it in quite a while. I don't make use of the feature myself as Flash is installed and automatically updated on every PC I use. I think you may have to put the files there and then set Firefox not to use the Flash container or something similar (the flash container is an EXE file).

Directories

Have you tried them in FirefoxPortable\Data\plugins and FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\plugins? FF may have changed something so our alternate location doesn't work. Also, do you have any extensions that could be interfering?

BTW - There should be an OCX file in there somewhere. On my 64-bit machine, the local version of Firefox currently utilizes FlashUtil64_12_0_0_77_Plugin.exe.

I tried the two new locations

I tried the two new locations and it still not working. But i found portable version of Firefox from another site which is able to use the flash files from PortableApps\CommonFiles\Plugins and i think i will use the other Firefox because i can't make this to work with portable flash files.
